Two new restaurants join Atwater Village’s dining scene

Journeymen restaurant on Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village

Journeymen replaced Canelé

ATWATER VILLAGE – The dining scene in the neighborhood has been turned up a notch, with two new restaurants opening in the same week across the street from each other, LA Weekly reports.

Good Measure, which replaced Ozu East Kitchen at the southeast corner of Glendale Boulevard and Larga Avenue, brings a list of off-the-beaten path wines paired with select bites, such as avocado toast and a brunch burger with tomato jam and cheddar. The list of appetizers includes creative combinations, such as watermelon and heirloom tomato gazpacho with purple basil.

Across the street on the north side of the boulevard is Journeymen. Located in the former Canelé space, Journeymen brings a business model that exposes employees to all facets of the business while serving locally sourced vegetables and meats. Chef David G. Wilcox himself brings in a broad background, coming to Atwater after stints at Gjelina in Venice, Mama’s Fish House on Maui and Mill Valley Beerworks in Marin.

  1. Good luck to both, but i am missing Canele!

  2. Those prices are INSANE, $8 for toast, TOAST!!! $14 avocado toast. Yes good luck. Who’s paying that much? I mean even if you make good money, you’d be a fool to pay $8 for a slice of toasted bread.

  3. Good Food not Fancy

    This is crazy. Sad that in my own neighborhood that I work and live my family and I cannot find food that isnt over the top! Purple basil 8 dollar toasted slice bread??? C’mon people! Make a family restaurant w feel good home cooking! I bet neither of these places last more than 2 years! Even Home get fancy. Thumbs down!!

  4. I don’t want to come across as a snob but honestly I wouldn’t feel comfortable paying anything less than $8 to $14 for toast. For one thing I care about quality and would be suspect of the quality and sourcing on an under $8 toast. I also want the people growing and serving my family our food to be earning a living wage.

  5. The trendy high-end restaurants seem to be have revolving ownership, but the the reasonably priced ones stay around of a long time. I wonder why that is?
